This site is a work-in-progress as I attempt to understand how the avocado industry works. The ultimate goal is a model similar to dairyanalytics.co.nz, but I'm not there yet. If you have any data relating to avocado prices (or know the answers to my questions and want to point out my ignorance), please get in touch email@example.com.
I'd like to understand how sales are negotiated at different steps along the supply chain. At this point, I know nothing.
nzavocado.co.nz provide some good information in their annual reports. The data is a little coarse. You can see the swings of over- and under-production. Trends have been to increase production and increase price.
Part of the change seems to be the introduction of the New Zealand Avocados Go Global scheme. There are five key objectives of the programme:
It seems to me that a better understanding of how prices are set, what their drivers are, and how volatility changes over time is a key component of an efficient supply chain (3), and a website similar to dairyanalytics.co.nz would help disemminate this knowledge (5).
Having trouble or got some suggestions? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
